Losing our perspective usually takes place in times of continued discouragement or fear. Discouragement and fear are stemmed from deceptions from the enemy. Peace and joy are attributes of faith in God and His word.
The enemy of our soul wants nothing less than for us to see ourselves as failures, outcasts, rejected, sick, poor, powerless, and unforgivable. Those are all lies to hinder us from the truth of who we really are. If we would grasp the truth of who we have been created to be and the destiny we're meant to walk in we would be unstoppable for the kingdom of God. That's the truth. And this is the truth that we need to daily remind ourselves of;
God is my Father and in so being He is my Healer, my Provider, my Restorer, my All in All because He provides unsparingly for His children. He IS a good and loving Father to me.
He accepts me unconditionally, without fail - ALWAYS!
He ALWAYS wants my fellowship - ALWAYS!
He has forgiven me - FOR EVERYTHING!
All that is His, He makes available to me.
He sees me as I am and yet, as if I am already perfected.
He receives me wholly as I am now and yet, gently guides and teaches me how to bear better and more productive fruit in my life. Why? Because He wants the best of the best for me. Always!
God is for me - not against me.
